video trilogy pt 1: ‘Pihani’

´Pihani´ is the 1st part of a music video trilogy coming out during fall ’20; videos were created in collaboration with Playart Productions. Teea Aarnio’s debut album will be published 2021. Album was created in collaboration with music producer Jukka Backlund.

“Basically this song is about accepting change, admitting mistakes, letting go of something that once was and in this case the lyrics tell about maturing to womanhood; there’s sorrow, and there’s also acceptance of the more deep, natural and authentic, underlying truths. And in the end; there’s a feeling of becoming, returning home.
 
Video deepens the original story of the song, connects inner nature to outer nature, and stretches out to the issues of deforestation here in Finland. Aggressive clearcutting is a problem here, and everywhere, and at the same time it’s a symptom of something quite profound that’s going on in human hearts. What we do to nature we do to ourselves.
 
´Pihani´is in English ´My Yards´, and to me, here, it speaks about the long, challenging travels that you face when you’re trying to find your home, and at the same time, it’s about the sorrows of seeing your home yard change.” –Teea
